Historic HIV Vaccine Trial Involving GeoVax Vaccine Spotlighted in The Georgia Voice and The Body

Articles Highlight AIDS Research Consortium of Atlanta's Search for Volunteers To Help Test Safety of GeoVax's Vaccine in 77-Week Trial

ATLANTA, GA, July 02, 2010 - GeoVax Labs, Inc. (OTCBB: GOVX), GOVX), a biotechnology company dedicated to developing vaccines that prevent and fight human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), is mentioned in two recent articles covering a historic HIV vaccine trial currently being conducted by the AIDS Research Consortium of Atlanta (ARCA) using a vaccine supplied by GeoVax

The first article, titled "ARCA Seeks Volunteers For Historic HIV Vaccine Trial," appeared in the June 11 print and online editions of The Georgia Voice, a publication focused on Georgia's LGBT community. In the article, Voice reporter Matt Shafer notes that ARCA is currently seeking volunteers to help test the safety of the GeoVax vaccine, which has shown the potential of reversing HIV viral loads in HIV-positive individuals. He goes on to describe how the vaccine works and details the stringent requirements for participation. The article quotes ARCA's observation that this is the first therapeutic trial ever conducted using a promising HIV vaccine candidate from GeoVax.

The second article, titled "Georgia: AIDS Research Consortium of Atlanta Seeks Volunteers for Historic HIV Vaccine Trial," was posted on June 28 on the website The Body: The Complete HIV/AIDS Resource. It is an excerpt of the Voice piece, once again reviewing ARCA's search for trial subjects and stringent participation requirements.

GeoVax CEO Dr. Robert McNally commented, "As I pointed out to The Georgia Voice, we are hopeful that this vaccine will reproduce its effects in humans the way it did in tests conducted on primates. We anticipate that media coverage such as these articles will make it easier to recruit appropriate test subjects, allowing us to initiate the trial in a timely fashion and accelerate our quest to bring a viable vaccine to market."

About GeoVax Labs, Inc.

GeoVax is a biotechnology company developing human vaccines for diseases caused by HIV-1 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus - AIDS) and other infectious agents. Our goals include developing AIDS vaccines for global markets, manufacturing and testing these vaccines under GMP/GLP conditions (FDA guidelines), conducting human trials for vaccine safety and effectiveness, and obtaining regulatory approvals to move the product forward. All preventative phase 1 human clinical trials conducted to date tested various combinations and doses of our DNA and MVA AIDS vaccines in human volunteers for their demonstrated ability to raise anti-HIV immune responses as well as for their safety. Successful results from all phase 1 testing supported the initiation of the first phase 2 testing. GeoVax's phase 2 human trial began in January 2009 and will involve 225 participants at sites in the United States and South America. Long term, we expect that GeoVax will grant manufacturing and distribution rights in several global markets in return for upfront fees, collaborative development agreements, and royalties on sales and distribution revenues. Internal vaccine manufacturing and distribution will also be considered by GeoVax. For more information, please visit www.geovax.com.
